Viva la revolucion!

De Blob was pretty special: smart design, a great atmosphere and a huge amount of fun mark it out as one of the Wii's finest titles. When THQ announced it would be bringing the title back for a release in 2011 we all had a smile on our collective faces, and now the first small details have surfaced we're even happier.

In development for Wii as well as DS, de Blob: The Underground is set on a tropical island, its beauty ruined by pollution caused by its tyrannical leader Comrade Black (yes, he returns!) under the name Papa Blanco. It's up to you, of course, to restore the resort to its rightful, colourful glory with all-new moves and even some 2D sections too.

With these first details out the door thanks to Nintendo Power, it won't be long before the first screenshots and videos start to drip from THQ, so stay tuned as we bring you more details on de Blob: The Underground.
